Doubts about Durban


Durban - The Airports Company of SA (Acsa) is ready to handle thousands of people who will converge on Durban for climate change talks next week.

"We would like to reassure all those that will be passing through our airports that we are prepared and ready to receive them," said King Shaka International Airport spokesperson Colin Naidoo on Monday.

Thousands of people were expected to arrive in Durban for the United Nations climate change conference, the 17th Conference of Parties (COP 17).

COP 17 will begin at Durban's Inkosi Albert Luthuli ICC on Monday and end on December 9.

There was chaos at King Shaka International Airport during the soccer world cup last year when there was not enough space for some planes to land.

Naidoo said a sharp rise in passenger volumes at the time of the conference was expected.

"Acsa has made some changes at King Shaka Airport that will come into effect from 1 November 2011 and will remain in place until 14 December."

The measures had been put in place to ensure the smooth flow of passengers.

Naidoo said the public drop-off and pick-up zone would be temporarily moved from the current location to the multi-story parkade.

"Airport users will enjoy 30-minute free parking in the multi-storey parkade and shade parking facility, as directed to park and wait for passengers."
